The Witches Of Friar's Lantern Reviews
Genre: YA some-what urban fantasyBook 2 of Beatrice Bailey's adventures. It's got the same structure as the first - adventure novel, with essentially physical barriers that by clever thinking and judicious use of their limited powers, the heroes overcome. The villain is a trifle annoying, in the first book he can be forgiven overconfidence, but in this book he really ought to have taken to heart the Evil Overlord List: http://web.archive.org/web/2002121900...The only reason he keeps getting defeated is that he keeps spending his time soliloquizing rather then doing something to stop the heroes.
As far as quality, this book falls somewhere between the first book and the third book (the third book being MUCH better than the first), which is not really a coincidence, since it falls between the first book and the third book chronologically, as well. The curious thing about this series is how recent it is -- early 2000s -- yet it feels older -- maybe 1980s. I'm not sure why unless it is the lack of any technological reference.
Very cute, unfortunately out of print series of children books. These belong to by daughter who has read them so many times that I decided to try them. They are a good fast read. If you come across a set of I think 6 books try them. They are good.
Read this when I was much younger and really enjoyed it (don't remember much of it now)
I don't rember anthing about this book. I read it years ago, and all I remember is that is was good.
really good, read the everyday witch first
